    Trisha, I have the same problem with a shallow tub. I have found that by rolling over and lay on my tummy for a while does the trick! I prop myself on my elbows so I can adjust the amount of exposure I have. Got to the point where I do half on my back and the other half on my stomach.

    I searched "cold therapy" I got lucky that I got the one for the price I found it. But these prices are still better then new. I found that the type I posted has the biggest pad. but it seems to be interchangeable with other machines. I found a site that sells the pad by itself for 25 dollars.

    For the cold vest wearers: is it wet? i read that you soak it then let it freeze....does that mean as you wear it (Say if you were sitting on the couch) you would get the couch wet? I'm thinking of buying one eps as as it gets warmer and i decide to start biking to work again - should help keep me cool....
  4. That might just be what I'll have to do. The only bummer is, I probably won't be able to read that way! Reading really helps me rake my mind off of the cold!

    Anyone have any better ways to get the water colder in the tub than just dumping bags of ice in? The ice just melts so fast. I've been using ice blocks which help but not much better. I need to buy a whole other freezer just for ice!

    I was thinking the same thing. I'd love to do this but don't see how I could hold anything in my hands. Maybe listen to music with headphones or something? I like the idea of flipping over. Wishing I had a swimming pool right now!

    I would be hoping for something a little more accurate. Think I will keep looking. Dr. Kruse did post an FB pic of disposable skin thermometers but I can't seem to track them down. I will keep looking....probably need to check out some medical suppliers.

    I just got this yesterday and used it in my bath last night. It added a good 3 inches to the depth of the water!

    I think at that price it is worth trying out. Dr Kruse did post a FB pic before showing disposable skin thermometers. I am trying to track them down on a medical supply site.

  11. I do have a pool, but the temp is only about 43 degrees right now... brrrrrr. I live in MI and water has been coming out of the tap right around 48 degrees at the coldest.

  12. Well, the price is right. I think I'll have to try that. I guess it will give me about 3 more inches too. Not enough, but better.

    I had looked at the ArcticHeat vest. Seemed to have pretty small amount of cooling for the cost. It's got 4 strips on the front and 3 on the back. The intent is really to keep people cool in the heat, not for weight loss though. The other downside is if you're large, and you do lose a lot of weight, the size of the vest doesn't change. So you'll need to use bands or something to keep it close to your body. So, if you've got the money to burn, it's probably ok, but I wouldn't spend the cash on it.

    I've been going low-tech by covering up the tub overflow with blue painter's tape. I have to remove it after each bath but it does a great job of maintaining water level in the tub.

    And how long can you keep it on? What type of ice bags? Not ready to do this just yet.

    question for those that have this- my overflow drain also has the lever that closes and opens the tub drain. To have the drain closed, I have to pull it out. Will this cover still work with that lever sticking out?
  18. I plan to sew a front/back vest with velcro straps to hold it tight, with pockets to hold ice packs. I will also make a velcro wrap with ice pack pockets to wrap around my belly. Maybe something for my thighs, too. If you know someone who sews, it should be hard to do.

    I took a "Paleo Sabbatical" from mid-December to mid-March and come back to the CT rage...There's never a dull moment in Jack Kruse Land, is there?

    After getting somewhat caught up on the topic I was at my chiropractor on the spinolator and water massage tables and wondered whether massage+cold would increase the effectiveness. As luck would have it, I went to Walmart to buy reusable ice pillow packs and compression shirts/ shorts and came across an " open box" Motor Massage Cushion for $19.99 which has settings for lumbar, back and sides. I plugged it in to a portable power pack with 12volt power. Topped it with my ice packs and here I am, chillin' in the comfort of my bed. I can lay it flat to do the front. It's not much of a massage, more of a vibration, but I'm hopping it will magnify the benefit.

    Excellent suggestion, Lyndra, for the blue tape. Works like a charm!
